RE: Campground recommendations for the FL panhandle

Juice I thought that I would list a few that you can look up and check out. 1. Bay Breeze, Gulf Shores - Small on the Bay under very large live oaks. Close to the fort. 2. Gulf Coat State Park, Gulf Shores - Large campground between the beach and the bay. 3. Camping on the Gulf, Destin - On the ocean with some trees 4. Top Sail - Destin - Large State Park with beach access. Large with a good many trees and large sites. 5. Pandian Ridge, Gulf Shores - Large, no trees very popular. Just a few to check out

RE: Recommendations for Moab campground

X3 Archview. As said it is out of downtown but is convenient to everything that you will want to do.

RE: Quality used Class A's

Tiffin Motor Homes makes a number of models with 1.5 baths. They make a good motor home. We are on our third and have really enjoyed every one that we have had. They stand behind what they build. Check out the Open Road 36UA and the 36LA. It is a little longer then you are looking for but it is a nice gas coach. Good luck with your search.

RE: Spearfish, SD

I agree with seeing the Badlands. While there cross the interstate and take the tour at the Minuteman Missile site. A lot of history and really cool to see. They take you down in the original silo in the elevator to see the control room. You can then see the missiles down the road in their silos. It does not take that long and well worth the time. That is a beautiful area. If you are in Hill City in the evening eat at the Alpine Inn Hotel Steakhouse. Very reasonable and all they serve is filet mignon. The only choice you have is regular size or large. The deserts are to die for but get there early. Crazy Horse & The Needles are worth your time. You can see the Needles at the north end of Custer SP.

RE: virginia Beach

We like to stay at Holiday Travel Park. It is very busy as is everything in the area. The Premium Deluxe sites are very nice. They own a parking lot down town in Virginia Beach where you can park with a pass and go to the beach or walk to a downtown restaurant. Yes there are a lot of military jets which fly over. We stay there to visit our Daughter and Son In Law who is an officer at Oceana.

RE: Planning a trip Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore, Deadwood Etc.

Mike We like to head out that way in as early spring as possible. One time we got to Colter Bay in the Tetons on Memorial day which is when they open. Yes you can get into snow but it melts pretty quickly that time of year. We had three inches Memorial day and several other nights but the roads were in great shape by 10 AM. It is best if you can do your trip before the schools in that area get out for the summer which is typically late June. You can see more, get around faster and enjoy more wildlife not to mention it being cheaper. As stated above you don't want to do South Dakota in August especially this August. It is some big Sturgis anniversary and they are expecting even bigger crowds. Definitely would not be an enjoyable time to go. We do make reservations for out destination locations but not for the overnight travel sites. You need to be making your reservations as we speak as things fill up fast.You will be glad that you made the trip. We took my 90 year old Mom through New England for a one month trip. She had a blast and we will remember it forever. Take it from me, do it while you and they can, you will be glad you did. Enjoy

RE: RV Parks in southern Texas

Check out Gulf Waters Luxury RV Resort in Port Aransis TX. It is one of the nicest that we have ever seen. It is definitely safe.

RE: Looking to buy our first DP

I’ve posted many times that you should buy more MH than you think you need, ONE TIME!!! 17 years ago as a lurker on this site I made a very expensive mistake believing posts that 36’ is the max for public I bought a used 36’ DP. Only took 2 years to figure out what a mistake that was so traded for a used 40’. When we started snowbirding went to 42’ for 14 years...7 summers of which we spent out West staying in mainly public CGs without reservations. Sure it’s harder with a BIG rig but it’s a lot easier now (the internet) than 14 years ago. Three summers ago we went to Southlake Tahoe on Labor Day without reservations, getting into the city park, our first choice. NO, it was not on Friday, it was on Monday when the working folks have to go home. This past summer we did 7 weeks out west without reservations (in a 45’) without any major problems finding public CG sites...USFS CGs are our favorite. I realize the bath and a half four plan is the current fad so I will not comment on needing 2 thrones, or frameless windows. I loved reading your post, it's very encouraging because i really don't think we could get all we want in anything under 40' thank you for taking time to comment. I also love the fact that you have been at it for so long, it's weird but even though i have never had an RV I just know i am going to love it. Ian and I have had cigarette style boats for the last 30 years, we have had a 43' one for the last 15 and spend a lot of time sleeping in marinas and towing it around, so he figures it will be easier to drive the bus than towing that boat. I have always loved the marina life, meeting new people and seeing new places so I can't wait to hit the road in a nice RV. Thanks again and since you are such a seasoned veteran would it be OK if once in a while i hit you up with a questions. If you would like to try to stay with a 40' unit check out the Tiffin 40 IP Bus or the 40 IH Phaeton. They are both on the Tiffin Powerglide Chassis. This gives you a higher rail which gives you about 6" more clearance in the compartments. It also gives you a level floor in the back over the engine. (No step up) We found that many of the 42 foot units actually have less storage space due to the space that is taken up by the tandem. Just our two cents. Enjoy your search.

RE: Looking to buy our first DP

Bob and Ann, i see you have a bath and a half, we would like that also, but LOL i got a little beat up by some because i wanted two "thrones" We are also going to be looking for a small jeep We love the bath and a half. We have it in this one and had it in our Phaeton. Of course I get to use the half bath and my wife enjoys the big one. Having the two baths is a huge help if you have guests along or even company visiting. Now you know who the boss is. We also really like the king size bed.

RE: Looking to buy our first DP

We have been to all of the states that you have listed. We have never had a problem finding a campground for our 40 foot. Some of the older state parks will not work but any commercial campground will work fine.
